Last Sunday marked the day that our nation was attacked. The day that countless lives were taken. The day that no one expected, but those affected will always remember. They thought they could break us. That their attack would destroy us. That we would never amount to anything more than our fate at that very … Continue reading What Truly Matters?!
Feeling alone is a troubling thing. Many are around, but it feels as if no one is there. No one can help or even cares. Being alone and feeling alone are polar opposites.

You have been struggling. Everything seems grey. Nothing is right. One bad thing and another one follows. You can't get up high before getting knocked down.
